The course then travels up Pleasants Valley Road to Lake Solano where it rejoins the 100k route up to Lake Berryessa, climbing over Cardiac Hill and continuing on to Moskowite Corner at the intersection of routes 121 and 128. Following route 121, the route descends toward Wooden Valley then climbs up and over Mount George, and descends again, into the Napa Valley. Your legs get only get a short rest as you make the 10-mile climb up Atlas Peak Road to the turn-around. The return course to Davis features the “back side” of Mt George, the Wooden Valley climb, and Cardiac Hill, returning directly to Davis across the ag lands of Yolo County. At 9000′ of climbing, it’s the hilliest 200k brevet offered by Davis Bike Club.
